    So I got the new touch interface this week and hooked it up. While I think it's a neat little device it's not exactly capable of replacing my computer just yet. A few thoughts:

    1. File names need to scroll or something, I couldn't tell the difference between several different steps.
    2. apparently a standard z-probe doesn't work? I guess not a biggie, so I ordered the XYZ probe from ya'll.
    3. while jogging is very smooth, I think it needs a precision mode. it's pretty difficult to position it exactly above a center point. even better if I could choose step increment and one tap == that one increment , when in precision mode that is.
    4. would like to see a readout of total width and height of cut part. would be super cool if it could jog around the max parameter.
    5. would be nice to specify multiple zero points, eg 54, 55, 56

    I think if you got all that stuff, this would be a killer product. Also, I'm sure some of this stuff has been requested, so if you could give me an update on what is in the works and when to expect it , that would be fantastic.

    Thanks for the suggestions!

    Having our XYZ probe will greatly enhance your experience - no need to precision jog when the probe can do it for you - its life changing to automate it.

    Filenames: it can only support 8.3 format, while saving your files, work out better names to help you recognise your files and keep to 8 character names. Use folders for further organisation.
